With the recent launch of the iPhone 3GS and a drop in the price of the iPhone 3G, Exspect is cashing in on the expected high demand for both devices by adding to its line of peripherals and accessories.

Exspect’s first full range of ‘Works with iPhone’ and ‘Made for iPod’ FM transmitters are due to be launched this month. The EX154 can be used with any FM radio and is powered by the iPod, a mini USB cable or an in-car charger. The EX156, which is compatible with the iPhone and all iPods, is designed specifically for use in a car, with a steering wheel control function and RDS technology to display the current track on the car stereo. Both transmitters have large LCD displays, auto-off functions, and can store up to two presets.

Following the success of its universal touchpen, Exspect is also launching a luxury leather wallet made specifically for the iPhone 3GS, which includes the pen in an incorporated holder. The touchpen is designed to make writing emails and notes easier, and the EX282 and EX283 wallets are available in black or red.

The EX108 Gaming Grip is ergonomically designed to recreate the experience of playing on a handheld games console. Made from silicon, it improves the user’s grip of the iPod Touch 2G and iPhone 3G while games are being played. The Grip is contoured to fit the palm of the hand while keeping the touch screen completely accessible. With a screen protector included as standard, it also doubles up as a protective case when not being used for games.

The firm’s popular iPhone slipcases are made from Nappa leather with a soft inner lining to protect the screen and contours of the phone. With a snug-fitting design, the EX044 – 055 cases come in black, red, brown and pink, with a pull-release ribbon mechanism to remove the phone.

The EX100 –104 protective cases have many of the same features, but have a flip front for a full view of the touch screen and quick access to all the phone’s ports. Available in four colours, the cases have a hard polycarbonate shell and leather covering with a soft interior.

Exspect’s EX705 – 709 flip cases are hand-stitched with a magnetic fastening. Designed especially for women, the leather cases come in animal print motifs including zebra, snake, crocodile skin and leopard.
